Sting Pays Tribute To Darby Allin, Says He Learned A Lot From The Star

Darby Allin Sting

Sting has broken down his relationship with Darby Allin.

Shortly after making his AEW debut in December 2020, Sting began a somewhat unlikely partnership with Darby Allin. The relationship saw The Icon return to the ring for the first time since 2015 after suffering what many believed was a career-ending injury.

The pair are truly beloved by fans and when Sting ends his in-ring career at AEW Revolution, he’ll do alongside Allin.

Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated ahead of his last match, the veteran discussed what fans can expect at Revolution as well as his partnership with Allin.

“I want people to walk away saying, ‘How was that even possible? I want people to be entertained. I want to elevate AEW. I never wanted wrestling to pass me by. That’s why I wrestled the way I did. This Sunday, I’m going to wrestle a way that will make people want to save the tape.

“I’m in good hands next to Darby. It’s been an honor to see him turn into this polished star. I’m grateful my last hurrah was with him. I didn’t teach him much about wrestling other than psychology here or there. Less is more, I taught him that. I taught him that it’s good to lose if you can lose the right way. Overall, he’s got the wrestling down. But I’ve learned so much from him. I couldn’t have been this successful without him.”

Sting Regrets Missing Dream Match With The Undertaker

During a different interview, Sting admitted he wishes he could have wrestled The Undertaker. The AEW star explained that he was hoping his matches in WWE would eventually lead to a showdown with The Deadman.

At Revolution, Sting will team with Darby Allin to defend the AEW World Tag Team Titles against The Young Bucks.
